Steinhardt to NJ Dem Congressional Delegation: Put New Jersey Before Pelosi

Congressional Democrats have derailed legislation that would have provided relief for families, hospitals, and businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, New Jersey Congressional Democrats exploit New Jersey’s sick and dying to push a bloated bill full of unrelated liberal spending and regulations. 

They include:
-Corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards at companies receiving assistance
-Bailing out all current debt of postal service Required early voting 
-Required same day voter registration 
-For companies accepting assistance, 1/3 of board members must be chosen by workers 
-Full offset of airline emissions by 2025 
-Greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
-Retirement plans for community newspaper employees 
-$15 minimum wage at companies receiving assistance 
-Permanent paid leave at companies receiving assistance

“The people of New Jersey are counting on their Congressional Delegation right now more than ever,” said NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt. “We are watching Congressional members Andy Kim, Mikie Sherrill, Tom Malinowski, and Josh Gottheimer wilt under the gavel of Nancy Pelosi and truly reveal how deprioritized public service is to this group of politicians. Our family members and neighbors are sheltered in their homes, businesses are shuttered in our downtowns, our hospitals are starting to become overwhelmed and people are dying. We need our Democrat Congressional delegation to do their jobs. Stop playing Pelosi politics with people’s lives.”
